I just rented an Africa Twin in Vegas and flogged it for a 172 miles in the desert. I just wrote a story about it here. https://www.africatwin.org/threads/quick-and-dirty-172-from-vegas.1476/ This is my second time renting from https://www.gsmotoadventures.com/ The first time I rented one from them back in March I LOVED the bike. This time I kinda hated it. Well, Hate is a strong word. I hated it until I rode the KLR650 This made me realize how important "tuning" our bikes for us matters. The lower bars wrecked my neck and shoulders after riding all day and more than that the super soft suspension almost flopped me on the ground a half dozen times. Luckily my hang on or die instincts worked out. I also forgot how excited the bike feels in the sandy and rocky conditions without my Scotts Stabilizer. So what are the things you consider important to making your bike yours?
